What do Educators say about EssayJack?
I've been on the professional development side of the EdTech industry for almost 20 years now, and it's rare to see an educational tool that is so clearly designed by educators. The application is not just a passive support tool; it actually teaches students about the writing process. I highly recommend it for both K-12 and post-secondary students.

Evoke Learning is delighted to partner with EssayJack, which has proven to be a valuable tool for our clients. EssayJack provides the brainstorming and writing structure our clients require to get started with the writing process. It allows us to provide valuable feedback to our students as they navigate their way through a written assignment. EssayJack, where have you been all our academic lives?

Crescent Student Services introduced EssayJack as an adaptive technology program for students who struggle to organize their essays. EssayJack provides the structure and gives the student prompts so that he can organize his ideas as he writes. As a former English teacher, I am so pleased to see that the prompts the program provides are the same as I would give if I was sitting beside the student while he is writing.

My students were given the opportunity to use EssayJack in a third-year International Human Rights course. Over a third of the students signed up for EssayJack accounts, and of these students who used EssayJack to prepare their written submissions, 75% improved their grades.

Questions from students [on written assignments] were taking up too much class time to go over, over and over again, so if it's things I've said before, I'm not doing it in class anymore, it's on EssayJack.

Make teaching academic essay structure easy
Getting essay structure right is the biggest challenge for most students. EssayJack's smart templates teach students about the conventions of academic essay writing. They make teaching writing in-class or remotely and setting written assignments easier for all educators at your institution.
Give educators a tool to guide students' writing 24/7
We don't believe that educators can be replaced by technology. With EssayJack educators can create and customise writing templates to suit the requirements of a course or the needs of a specific student. Replicating this at an institutional level ensures that all students have the writing support they need, at all times.
Ensure all students learn to write quality essays
We created EssayJack to level the playing field in academic writing. Using EssayJack across an institution achieves this by ensuring that every student always has access to writing guidance that is pedagogically sound and follows the conventions of academic writing set by your institution and its educators.
Can I use my own rubric to review essays?
Not at the moment. We have a built-in standard rubric that allows you or your students to rate and comment on the 4 key areas of any essay: 1) Organisation, 2) Content 3) Style, 4) Spelling, grammar, punctuation. You can also add inline comments to the essay text.
Does EssayJack work with the LMS at my institution?
Yes, EssayJack can be seamlessly integrated into any LMS you might be using for your institution so students can easily access it. The only requirement is that the LMS is LTI compliant. Examples of LMS that EssayJack can be integrated with include Canvas, Moodle, Edsby, Blackboard.
Can I view my students' work in real-time?
No. We built EssayJack to empower students to learn to write their essays independently with your guidance in the form of tips, prompts, sentence starters, and videos. However, they can share their progress with you at any point in the drafting process by asking you for a review or emailing the text to you from the app.
